Even Blurbier

Photo today: One of the senior VP's at Todd's work is leaving the company to be a CEO somewhere else, so they had a party for him today. Someone made this goodbye cupcake with a flip flop candle on it. Todd brought one home for me and it was yummy! Too bad the guy leaving is the guy who is on the Holiday Bowl committee... that means no more free Holiday Bowl tickets for us every December. :( I've been checking into blog printing services lately, and I knew Blurb.com did it for Blogger blogs before. Then I was told that they discontinued the service and I was bummed out. They've brought it back! Blurb prints Blogger blogs into photo books now, again. They have a free software download called BookSmart, and there's code in there to "slurp" up your blog into their book creation software to make your blog into a book. Only thing is, I don't put full-res photos on my blog, so I'd have to go through and replace all my photos with full-res versions for printing in a book, and that would just be a pain in the butt with THAT many photos. But I'm definitely interested in it for end of the year, either for myself or as a gift for our families. There is a limit of 440 pages though, so I'm not sure if my entire year of blog posts will fit into one book. I'll be downloading the software soon and I'll let you know how it goes. I'm also thinking of making a Blurb book out of my Project 365 weekly layouts. Blurb is definitely on my list of things to try out. If you've had experience with book printing at Blurb.com, please share it in the comments section of this post. I would love to hear about it. Dinner tonight was Szechuan Spicy Noodles with Carrot-Cucumber Relish: Photobucket It's so good! Todd made it once for my dad and Shelly, and my dad couldn't get enough of it! And he's a real Chinese person! (Well, me too, but he's more traditional than me, LOL.)
